different today compared to when i started
Admissions Representative (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – December 6, 2012
a typical day at work - i was a representative for the school. as a representative, i met w/adult and high school prospective students. i was responsible for assisting them through what we called their education time line. education time line: appointment, fanancial aid assistance, schedule for school, retention, and graduation. 1. made calls, if not in on an appointment(s), 2. corresponded by phones, emails, and even mailers, 3. assisted in the retention effort, and 4. worked with other departments
what you learned - i learned how for profit education works from all apects. i have to admit that even though there are tons of negatives out there, for profit schools can still do good to great things for a community
management - i didn't really have a good and positive experience with management other than my own. why? each department is required to achieve set goals. often, our goals went against other department's goals. this lead to many days of infighting
your co-workers - we became family. we developed a common concern, upper management. you become family when put into the situation that we had to endure. most of us still hang out on the weekends.
the hardes part about the job - internal obstacles between departments making it difficult to complete my job at times.
the most enjoyavble part of the job - the fact that my student graduate, find gainful employment, and get paid more than me. i changed lives!
helping others obtain skills and knowledge that employers are seeking
